If you smoke cigarettes and you have hpv, will your body kill or not kill the virus on its own if you smoke?

No, though...: Good imagination - similar to drinking red wine to the heart. But there has been no one word good about smoking tobacco in available literature yet - unlike red wine story; so, stop smoking to save life and live longer ; better; no such a thing.

Can HPV or genital herpes kill you?

Some, yes: Hpv is a virus that can cause certain cancers, including cervical cancer. This can certainly kill you if not caught early and treated. Genital herpes is unlikely to be fatal, unless you get severely immunosuppressed and it attacks other organs, such as the brain.
